Kampong Speu and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, June 2017 – The consequences of nutritional iodine deficiency are well known in Cambodia. Adequate iodine intake during pregnancy, lactation and early childhood is critical for optimal brain development of the foetus and of children aged 6 months to 2 years old. Failure to do so can lead to intellectual disability and goitres. Though Cambodia achieved universal salt iodization in 2010, the situation has regressed to an alarming degree.
